Windows 10 retail package design is perhaps the last time there will be a traditional box packaging of world’s most popular desktop software.
Come July 29th, Microsoft plans to launch the latest edition of it’s operating system Windows’ latest version – Windows 10 and the packaging was leaked yesterday by German site WinFuture . Unlike the colorful and eclectic Windows 8 package released a few years back, the latest ones keep up with time, delivering sleek, minimal visual effect with one bold color separating the use.
The home edition has a blue theme, while the pro edition has the purple theme (in keeping with Microsoft’s preference for the darker color representing more features and depth of product).
Note the nice use of windows with a light shining through it, to signify a more open-source and shared development approach being embraced by the company in light of Azure cloud and latest Linux integration features for containerized application development.
The distribution would also be available via USB and the packaging labels look like these:
Likely to be the last version of retail option, in future the OS is likely to be available for upgrade over internet, without needing a physical distribution.
